The Aston Martin Vanquish has been in service since 2012 and is now entering its final phases of its production life. To celebrate its farewell, the Gaydon based company has introduced a special edition model to bid it farewell – the Vanquish S Ultimate.
Powered by the familiar 6.0-litre naturally aspirated V12 and eight-speed automatic transmission combination, the Vanquish S Ultimate packs 592 hp and 630 Nm of torque – just like a standard Vanquish S. It goes from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds with a top speed of 323 km/h.
Only 175 units of the Vanquish S Ultimate will be made and customers can have it in either Coupe or Volante body styles. Three distinct themes have been thoughtfully crafted by the guys at Aston Martin, each featuring different colour schemes and interior trims.
The first theme features a monochrome style – Ultimate Black paintwork with Copper Bronze accents around, a nod to the first-generation Vanquish S Ultimate Edition. Other details include black exhaust tailpipes, brake calipers, window trims and 5-spoke alloy wheels. Inside, it spots a Obsidian Black leather with Chestnut Tan contrast.
The second theme takes inspiration from technical sportswear – Xenon Grey paintjob with Cobalt Blue accents and Yellow brake calipers. The striking exterior theme continues inside with Phantom Grey leather upholstery with Electron Yellow and Spectral Blue contrast stitching.
The last designer theme features a White Gold paintwork with Warm Bronze accent and a Chestnut Tan leather with Obsidian Black upholstery. Additionally, customers can pick and choose any exterior and interior combination for no added cost.
Aston Martin VP & Chief Sales Officer, Christian Marti said: “Since the Vanquish was first introduced it immediately established itself as the pinnacle of our series production range. It has since evolved into a truly formidable machine. As the much-loved and highly-acclaimed Vanquish S nears the end of production, we wanted to celebrate its success with a limited run of very special cars. The Ultimate edition perfectly captures the spirit of Vanquish and is sure to be sought after by collectors around the world”.
Prices for the Aston Martin Vanquish S Ultimate starts from £211,995 (RM1.2 million) for the Coupe and £223,995 (RM1.25 million)for the Volante. Order books are now open with first deliveries scheduled for Q1 of 2018.
